Cucumber sandwiches are lonely without a pot of this best selling, aromatic black tea enhanced with heady oil of bergamot. Add a slice of lemon to enhance the citrus notes and then have a nice piece of cake. This refreshing, loose-leaf tea marries well with teatime accompaniments but also satisfies at anytime of day.
The quality of water used as an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. Heat water to the recommended temperature using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
Heat fresh water to rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F.
Use the infuser of your choice. Measure 1 teaspoon of tea per person. For a stronger brew preference, add an additional teaspoon for the pot.
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea leaves. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5-7 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
